WATERLOO ROAD: COMMUNITY FILM CLUB AT TATE MODERN
Monday 3 July 
7pm (refreshments from 6.30pm) in the Starr Auditorium at
Tate Modern, Bankside
The Community Film Club is celebrating its first birthday.
Membership is free to those who live and/or work in the
area; email communityfilmclub@tate.org.uk to join.
Set in the mean streets around Waterloo Station, Waterloo
Road is a popular drama giving a good view of the way the
war left 'folks battling with themselves' at home. A tale
told in flashback with Alastair Sim as Dr. Montgomery. Jim
Colter (John Mills) has joined the services leaving his wife
Tillie (Joy Shelton) in the hands of his mother (Beatrice
Varley). When Tillie who is lonely falls for the local spiv
Ted Purvis (Stewart Granger), Jim goes AWOL and heads home
to settle matters. The heart of the film lies in the journey
through the local pleasure domes - the dance halls, pubs,
amusement arcades and hairdressing parlours.
